ONLINE PATIENT ACCESS
STATEMENT OF INTENT FOR HIGHBURY GRANGE MEDICAL PRACTICE
Nationally the way GP records are managed in the NHS is changing in three important ways.
1. Summary Care Record (SCR)
2. GP to GP Record Transfers
3. Patient Online Access to Their GP Record
These changes do not enable your record to be shared outside the team of professionals who look after you. They are designed to improve and speed up your care and provide you with more access to what is in your medical record.
1. Patient Online Access
We will be offering the facility for booking and cancelling appointments and also for ordering your repeat prescriptions online. Alongside this, all patients in England will have access to their GP medical records online by 31st March 2015.
This means you can have secure access to relevant parts (current medications, immunisations and allergies) of your record from devices that can access the internet.
To use these services you should first come to the practice with photographic ID. We will then give you your secure login details.
2. Summary Care Record (SCR)
NHS England requires GP practices to upload any changes to patients’ summary information on their Summary Care Record by 31st March 2015.
The Summary Care Record (SCR) is a brief summary of your medical record that will help anyone treating you in an emergency that does not have your full medical record. It contains details of any medication you are taking and any allergies that we know you have. Your SCR is automatically updated at least daily to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can possibly be.
You can find out more by watching “What is a Summary Care Record” here http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=V0KIN0Tq5_w
You do not have to have a SCR if you do not want one. Please inform our reception team if you do not want a SCR.
3. GP to GP Record Transfers
A new way of transferring patient records electronically between GP practices has been developed to be used when a patient moves from one GP practice to another.
NHS England requires this new method to be used for all new or de-registering patients by 31st March 2015. Highbury Grange Medical Practice already uses this method to transfer records to and from other practices currently using the GP to GP system.
For your own medical care it is very important that you are always registered with a GP practice. If you leave your GP and register with a new GP, your medical record will be forwarded on to your new GP. It can take several weeks for your paper record to reach your new surgery. With the new system your electronic record is transferred to your new practice much more quickly.
